For this week’s Once A Week Page there is one really simple thing you can do. Go to Just Label It, fill out the info on the right hand side of the page and click send message.

There is a pre-written message that will get sent to the FDA asking that they comply with the legal petition which has been filed requesting the FDA label genetically engineered food.

That’s all you have to do. Easy peasy.

    Nice re-blog. Worthy cause indeed. I wonder how these bigger percentages (of GMO’s) might also be labeled:

    – grains that feed animals (to feed humans)
    – grains mixed with gasoline
    – plants for “food stuffs” (i.e. Cheetos)
    – plants for cosmetics and personal care products

    America’s hunger for cheap, convenient things that also minimize the amount of “work” we do to get them (so that we can just sit back and enjoy) created the perfect niche for GMO’s. The only thing Monsanto did wrong was to think “they could” before they considered whether “they should.” There are potentially more serious, longer-term consequences.

    I’m afraid the cat’s already out of the bag. It’s doubtful FDA-labeling alone can put that cat back in, but it is a start. “I will be the hummingbird…” (repeating my Maathai mantra)

      Thanks for your comment, Shannon. You bring up some good points. We have a long road ahead of us.

      One thing I agree with you on is that Americans need to rethink they way we eat. Stop going for that cheap, convenient meal on the run. It’s unhealthy in so many ways.
